ENB - Region 6 Notices 5/4/2016

Negative Declaration and Public Comment Period

Lewis County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Draft Amendment to the East Branch of Fish Creek Conservation Easement Recreation Management Plan (RMP) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The purpose of this draft RMP amendment is to add additional public access to the unit. A proposed 20 mile foot/ski trail would cross the East Branch of Fish Creek Easement Properties, Detached Forest Preserve Lots and East Branch of Fish Creek State Forest lands. The trail will eventually traverse the Unit from the Osceola Road parking area to the Mad River Headwaters Compartment. Trail construction may require removal of approximately 15-20 trees, brushing and pruning work and construction of six small footbridges.

Written comments are welcome and will be accepted by mail or e-mail, by the contact person until May 19, 2016. The Draft RMP Amendment is posted on the NYS DEC website at:

The project is located in the Towns of Lewis, Montague, Osceola and West Turin, New York.

Oneida County - The Town of Annsville, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Lee Center-Taberg Road Water District will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. With the existing service to residents along Lee Center-Taberg Road, Amos Drive and John Street in the Town of Annsville coming from an abandoned section of 20 inch City of Oneida transmission main, water takes 4 to 13 days to reach customers, resulting in a large volume of stagnant water. The goal of this project is to install a new water main connection and provide services to residents in order to mitigate this problem. The proposed Water District facilities generally include the installation of approximately 2,000 linear feet of new 8 inch and 2,100 linear feet of 6 inch ductile iron water main and appurtenances and one (1) connection to the existing 24 inch transmission main at the intersection of State Route 69 and Lee-Center-Taberg Road. The existing 6 inch water mains located in the Collins mobile home park would be maintained, while a new 6 inch water main would be installed along Amo Drive. Both mobile home parks would be connected to the 8 inch water main along Lee Center-Taberg Road via these 6 inch water main extensions with master meter/PRV vaults. Fire hydrants would be installed at approximately 600 foot spacing along all water mains in the system. Along Lee Center-Taberg Road, service lengths will be replaced up to the nearest connection point of each served structure, and new water meters with PRVs will be installed at each water service entrance location The project is located on Lee Center-Taber Road in the Town of Annsville, New York.
